Background Story For Full Plate Thursday
When we were young and just starting out in life sometimes we did not have a lot of money. Most of our friends were having to stretch the dollars at the end of the month just like us. My girlfriends and I decided that we would pool our food for some of the evening meals right before payday... the last week of the month. I have some of the fondest memories from those days. We would all bring our food together and we had some great food and great fellowship. We would get the food on the table and everything ready, someone would bless the food and then the hostess would say "come fill your plate".
Very Important Notice
All of us work very hard to develop a post, we have to get the recipe together, make the marketing list, shop at the market, prepare the dish, shoot the photos, write the post and then hope that folks will like it.That is quiet a process and a true ART PROCESS. It is so sad when someone else comes along and takes your entire post, the recipe and the photos without your permission, much less a link back to the original work, giving you credit for all your hard work and creativity. When those kind of post are brought to Full Plate Thursday, they will be DELETED. I appreciate and love each one of you and the amazing talent that all of you have and I want to help protect your work and know that you would do the same for me.

  42. Hi Miz Helen,
    It's really sad to see people steal other people's work. If they can't come up with their own work they shouldn't be blogging to begin with. Thank you for taking it down and protecting the creator's work. Hope you're having a great week-end!
